Técnico Solar Boat is a project by engineering students at Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon, where they design and build boats powered by renewable energy. Each year the team participates in worldwide engineering competitions organized by Solar Sport One and Yacht Club de Monaco, where they regularly get placed in second and first place.
The student team turned to Taoglas for help adding 4G cellular for telematics applications and GPS for tracking the boat’s speed. In the initial setup, the cellular and GPS systems shared an external antenna: the Taoglas Olympian MA140, a high-performance combination LTE and GPS/GLONASS/Galileo screw mount antenna.
